SolarWinds RMM: Service Release with New Windows GA Agent

We’re pleased to announce a set of performance updates to Bitdefender Managed Antivirus, as well as a new Windows GA Agent to bring you the latest monitoring and Patch Management enhancements. In addition, we have a series of bug fixes for several RMM reports.

The release will roll out across all territories in the next few days. Here’s what’s included:


New Windows GA Agent

We’re updating Windows Agent v10.8.8 to be the new GA Agent. This includes the enhancements in the current v10.8.7 RC Agent, together with a performance improvement for the new Patch Management engine. Here’s a quick summary:

  • Resolution for Kaspersky monitoring in the Antivirus Update check
  • Resolution for Veeam Backup monitoring in the Backup check
  • ‘ScriptRunner’ v10, used to run custom scripts created with Automation Manager
